The Year 11 Rugby team played their first game of the year on Thursday, away to Worle School. Both teams had been drawn together in the first round of the Somerset Cup which brought many of the Winscombe RFC players together in an exciting battle. Churchill were confident winners 55 - 21. Special mentions to Oliver Clough, excellent job in the captaincy role and to George Raynham-Thropp for Players' Player. Jonah Storey for the final mention, all round great performance and a fantastic individual try to cap off. Good luck in the next round!
